Caudalie all started when it had noted that the grape pickers had wonderful skin on their hands so the properties were researched as to how these wonderful compounds from grapes could be so good for the skin. Nowadays this translates into their wonderful offering of moisturisers, cleansers and body care. Premier Cru, The Rich Cream is the stand out beauty product within the range and they now offer refills too for an even more environmentally conscious approach. The SPF sun creams and sun water sell out fast every single summer so we can never get enough of those! For younger and older skin alike, the Instant Foaming Cleanser is always a hit to easily remove make up and leave skin clean, soft and supple. For spot prone skin, the Vinopure serum features salicylic acid and works to calm inflammation and redness. Then we have Christmas and what's not to love with their great value gifts for the green beauty lovers.
Caudalie has grapes, vines and vineyards at their heart, since the day that a Harvard professor approached Mathilde and Bertrand (owners of a wine producing estate in Bordeaux) and asked them what they did with the pips? He said 'You're literally throwing away treasure' and explained that those seeds contain the most powerful antioxidant compounds in the world. Caudalie skincare brand was born.
The company has since worked with Professor Joseph Vercauteren to study the skincare benefits of the seeds, vines, skins and all parts of the plants, discovering breakthrough ingredients with scientifically advanced yet natural compounds which can work wonders for the skin. The products created are loved by many, and the company has grown to produce outstanding natural skincare products with market leading ethical principles to match. Caudalie cares about the environment, supports charities, and is working towards all packaging being fully recyclable for 2022. All products are vegetarian and most are vegan.
Caudalie also teamed up with a charity IIVS, to help educate the Chinese government scientists how to test on non animal, in vitro methods. We are delighted to say that with the work that IIVS performed in China, the Chinese government declared that they would end compulsory testing on animals from 1st January 2020.
